Come out and listen to The Hot Fugue Sundae’s “Spotlight on Swing” show! I have seen this group numerous times, and they absolutely rock. Their show is wicked fun, they always outdo themselves and put on a show that is memorable. I have filmed and recorded them often. I have a few videos up on YouTube, feel free to check them out. You’ll be glad you did.

Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans Memorial
FORWARD THIS NOTICE TO ALL PATRIOTS
Please join us for our annual visit to the Massachusetts Viet Vet Memorial, Green Hill Park, Worcester, MA. We will meet at the Memorial at 11 AM. Each year we take a moment to remember those who were killed in the Vietnam War.
More info on the Memorial at: http://www.massvvm.org.
The Memorial is one of the finest State memorials in America. It is beautiful this time of year. Feel free to encourage guests and citizens to join us for a short ceremony, remembrance, and good fellowship followed by lunch at a local restaurant.
I am looking forward to meeting brother and sister veterans as we take a moment to remember those among us who remain forever young. We will never forget.
This is the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, and the 25th anniversary of our Leominster Memorial. This is the year we will pay a special tribute to those who were killed in Vietnam. They will not be forgotten.
Please join with us in Worcester.
We will also complete plans for our annual scholarship program. The Scholarships will be awarded at our next special meeting on June 9, 2015.
Bill of Rights the Unapologetic American Version
The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. These limitations serve to protect the natural rights of liberty and property. They guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government’s power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public.
For those out there in America who like to burn flags, spit on our Veterans and preach your basic hate and discontent, the collective we, the soldiers, sailors, marines, coasties, air men and guard are the same group of women and men that signed their names and took a oath just SO YOU COULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO TREAT US AND AMERICA LIKE SHITE! By your sheepdogs at www.unapologeticallyamerican.com this ain’t Nam dude brought to you by your sheepdawgs at firebase116.org
Please support and wear the Ranger Up line of clothes for women and men. See them, order them, FEEL THEM at www.rangerup.com watcha waiting for? RTFU and get moving soldier!
It wore you out. It aged you. It made you witness a lifetime of human events within a short period of time.
How do you go home and explain that experience to the unknowing? You can’t. Words can’t describe all those highs and lows that you experienced during that period.
It wasn’t a self-gratifying European backpacking trip. You weren’t some idol suburbanite trying to find himself on a road trip. Your trip overseas was business–rough, violent, and dangerous business.
You don’t owe an explanation to anyone. The only people you have to answer to are the people you shared that time with and yourself. Your time is done.
Deployment… You’ve been there, you’ve done that.
